in thread What's so unique about Perl?

Really, it doesn't take much to do whatever you want to do

No, I can't agree with that. There are many things that Perl can do only with great effort. Just because you can do something in Perl, doesn't mean that your task was "quick" and "simple".

And besides, should everything in programming be quick and simple? Where would the challenge be?

    Not everything, but expressing your algorithm/solution should.

    Where would the challenge be?

    In finding the better algorithm/solution.
